This was our very first LivingHome, installed in April 2006 in just eight hours. Designed by the late Ray Kappe, FAIA, the residence was the first to ever achieve a USGBC LEED for Homes Platinum certification.
The private residence now serves as our Santa Monica show home. Learn more and register for a guided visit on our tours & events page.

The late Ray Kappe, FAIA, was Plant’s first design partner, responsible for the company’s famous Santa Monica show home (the first home in the world to achieve LEED Platinum certification), a number of remarkable custom projects, and several LivingHomes. His residential architecture is world-renown, characterized as 'the apotheosis of the California House.' Kappe’s designs evince a mastery of warm, modern spaces, clearly expressed construction systems, and environmental sensitivity.
